You most certainly do get a choice but not if you are using Steam. What I have done is put steam on my secondary hard-drive which as I have something over 399GB of games makes sense as I have a 128GB SSD for my boot and programs drive.

What you can do is move the whole of the Steam folder, this shows you how. Move Steam. By the way I am playing Skyrim myself at the moment.

thanks for your help Chronos, got to the point where I delete all files in "steam" folder except "steamapps" and "steam application" problem is i can remove all except logs folder and steam text doc, The logs folder "can't be deleted because the folder or file is open in another program". The steam text doc"can't be deleted because the file is open in steam" I've tried to sort this problem out but no luck,I wonder if you would be good enough to help me once again, thanks Eric

Do you have Steam set up to start when Windows boots as this will cause the issue you describe. I have moved Steam many times using this method and it works.

So look in the bottom right hand corner of your PC and see if the Steam icon is there,if so right click then exit and then you can complete the process.

Come back if you have problems as there is a second way of moving the Steam folder.

Probably you killed an innocent someone. Check in statistics for your crime bounty. I have done that a couple of times,I have even been in jail once and at the moment I am avoiding one city as I'll have to go to jail again.LOL

I have found with Skyrim that you must hard save often and only quick save if you are traveling long distances.

Either load a save before the quest or see if you can do some jail time or pay the guards off.

What is your Steam ID and ill add you to my friends list.Mine is Mr Fraggle (UK).
